Year 6 pupils who achieved the

outstanding award of Level 6 in their end of KS1 assessments (the national expection is Level 4).






























Junior Applications

Places are normally available for each year group, i.e. Years 3 - 6 for boys and girls (7 - 10 years of age). At present, not all year groups have vacancies, so please call the Admissions office for availability of places.

Entrance Assessments will take place during the week beginning 16 January 2017. Children come into school for a full day and we hope to create a relaxed atmosphere for them to show their capabilities. The Assessment consists of papers to test literacy, numeracy and reasoning power set to standards normally expected of boys and girls of above average ability. The aim is to test potential rather than specific knowledge. In addition to the Assessment which takes place in the morning, the children also enjoy an afternoon in class, joining in with the activities that our pupils are doing.

Forthcoming assement dates are:


Tuesday 6 December 2016

Assessment Day for 6+, 7+, 8+, 9+, 10+ candidates

Please contact the Admissions team to book a place or for more information: 01625 260000.

Parents are required to register before Friday 2 December 2016, by completing the Registration Form and returning it to the Admissions Office with a non-returnable fee of £50.  Offers of places will be posted out on 26 January 2017 and replies are required by 10 February 2017.

In order to gain a fuller picture of a child’s suitability, we will contact the child’s present Head Teacher to ask for details of academic progress, interests and future potential.  This information, sought prior to the Assessment, forms an important part of the admissions procedure and it is assumed that parents will notify the current school and inform them that a reference request will be made in early January.

Transfer to the Senior Divisions

Internal candidates who joined King's Juniors prior to the start of Year 5 will not be required to sit the 11+ Entrance Examination and will be offered assessed places for the Seniors. Any pupils joining King's Juniors after the October half-term of Year 5 will be required to take the 11+ Entrance Examination in order to gain entry to the Senior Girls' and Boys' Divisions. Please phone the Admissions Office for more information and advice.
